Shrine to Chronic Social Indigestion

caleb.eckert's picture











Collected close to my site in the afternoon of Saturday, March 28. Still some left in that patch of woods.


One might state something about

materiality and post-modernity, about

artistic subversivity and social justice, about

conspicuous consumption; one might

squish intellectualism into a concretized diagnosis of

the present and call it a day.


Or we could be talk about

why this was here, about

where it goes now, about

what it means to grow more fully

human and alive.
